Attorney Ian Smith reports today on the latest unilateral action by the Obama administration to increase the flood of foreign tech workers — and satisfy the lobbyists for the trillion-dollar tech industry. The plan involves slashing the wait times that Indians on temporary work visas have in obtaining work permits, which are basically de facto green cards. Further, all of the spouses and children under 21 of these Indians will also receive work permits. The numbers run into hundreds of thousands – at a time when the tech industry is laying off American workers.
The move appears to be of dubious legality. Rather than getting into the legal weeds with our non-immigration attorney readers, Smith’s article can be read here: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/424821/visa-rules-change-obama-tech-industry-india
